Though not officially part of the Charleston Wine + Food Festival, two big name food journalists are visiting the Lowcountry this weekend. The New York Times former restaurant critic and current national news editor Sam Sifton and The New York Times columnist Mark Bittman are in town to film their "Feast in a Day" series. Local filmmaker and head of the Cut Company, Justin Nathanson directed the film crew around Charleston this morning as they gathered ingredients for the big dinner finale.
Bittman and Sifton sourced local ingredients for their Southern menu from some hometown favorites. They began at GrowFood Carolina and went on to pick up items from Magwood Shrimp, Ted's Butcherblock, Piggly Wiggly, and The Wine Shop of Charleston. We can't wait to see the feast they create. The short film should air online in March.
